Andhra Pradesh(India) has become the ultimate victim of the allegations against Reliance Industries Limited by TV5. TV5 claimed in a report that Reliance’s chief, Mukesh Ambani was involved in the helicopter crash that led to the untimely death of YS Rajasekharan Reddy. The report was based upon the claims of the website “exiledonline”, which has now been removed.
The Andhra Pradesh police have filed a suo moto case against the news channel as it incited violence. Reliance too in a statement today stated that it would file a criminal complaint against the channel. A RIL spokesperson today said in a press release that “RIL is a law abiding corporate citizen” and “We are shocked and outraged at the false, malicious, motivated and libelous news on TV5 channel concerning the fatal mishap of Shri Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy's helicopter. We condemn, rebut and reject the allegation with the contempt it deserves.”
